EFFY Is Aiming To Create A Place That Embraces Diversity

EFFY is trying to change the wrestling world.

Effy is a independent pro-wrestler who wrestles for Game Changer Wrestling and a number of other promotions. He is a huge advocate for the LGBTQIA+ community in and outside of wrestling. Coming up in 2023 in partnership with TNT Extreme Wrestling, EFFY will bring his Big Gay Brunch show outside of the United States for the first time, and they’ll head to the United Kingdom. Recently, EFFY sat down with Alistair McGeorge of Metro where he explained that he has already done more than he expected in his wrestling career, and he referenced his feud with Jeff Jarrett where the blow off took place in GCW at the Hammerstein Ballroom as one highlight. Moving forward, he aims to foster creativity, equality, and acceptance of diversity.
